In brief: I doubt it

Wilson's is rare and when two youngsters with it came down with leukemia, there was talk about either the copper overload or the Penicillamine rx possibly being a cause.
Wilson's is very serious and i wouldn't worry about an old claim of a link that was first made in 1982 without any real further validation.
